Skin Airbrush Technique Tutorial found

I found this while looking for something else and thought some here at RetouchPro would be interested (especially the adding back texture portion):

Skin Airbrush Technique or how to make skin look healthy without looking plastic or blurred.

Even though this method uses the Surface Blur filter (introduced in Photoshop CS2), I am sure that the adding texture portion of the tutorial could be used with the other more popular methods of smoothing skin here at RetouchPro.

Tutorial found at: http://tutorialpulse.com/49/superb-s...ush-technique/

Hope it helps

(Admin- if it needs moved, please do it!)

Re: Skin Airbrush Technique Tutorial found

the idea of taking the skin details through the red channel is quite nice...even tho i have to try it first. don't think, that it out-rules the mighty highpass

I just threw up all over my tablet and was suddenly transported back to 1989 when PS 1.0 was just released.

Re: Skin Airbrush Technique Tutorial found

This was posted for the masses of newbies here that are in the process of evolving and are told to add noise or put some of the original texture back but never told how to do it.

I guess I should have prefaced the title with "How to add noise/grain to the neutral layer technique " so all you OLD PRO's who have evolved to D&B wouldn't have to click.

BTW that 80s stuff makes me sick also.. reminds me of my Tandy Color Computer ("CoCo") and doing all my own coding.

Markzebra, The music of the early 50s is the only way to go!

Here ya go Ant.. sorry bout your tablet.. hope this helps some!

While it's fair to point blame at the 80's for the introduction of midi and
the eventual 'quantizing' of music to a grid, autotune, beat detective, and
other often abused tools, there were still some GREAT songs from
that period. And a lot more artists from that time that had much more
longevity than today's one song/album "artists".

I still prefer 'theme' music from then also. Theme music to tv shows
and movies that are still known/enjoyed by kids today.

I agree with pixelzombie. There's always crappy AND awesome music/art
being produced.

Ant - you make me laugh! hold nothing back. LOL

I also started out with blur, then moved on to dodge and burn / lighten & darken. At first it comes as a shock when you realise how long it takes - but it DOES and thats it.
